Hammock Recommendation

My wife really wants a hammock to relax and read in. But most of the places we camp at will rarely have trees that would work for the tie up type hammock.

Does anybody camp with the hammocks that come with a stand that they would recommend?

We got one this year, we love it.

A little background for reference,; we've spent a small fortune on chairs...Like most people, chairs are hard to pick, and after all the chairs we've bought, we still got a hammock, its relaxing and useful, we watched a few YouTubes about how to sit in them. They are little strange to get used to, and to find a good position. We got a double, its just more fabric, not really comfortable with two people, but it can be done if you fit.
fyi, Our favorite chairs are Nemo Stargaze Recliner Luxury Chair (~$219. now); and Tommy Bahama Beach Chairs, (they are ~$24. now, used to be way more expensive). Our camping chairs we dont use any longer: Helinox Chair Two Rocker ($179.)

So, our Hammock (from REI, but not sure if they still stock these):

Therm-a-Rest Double Hammock ($44.73); Nice fabric, green, 300 lb capacity

Therm-a-Rest Slacker Suspenders Hammock Hanging Kit ($22.73) grey

ENO Nomad Hammock Stand
Item # 1131630001 ($187.39)

We used the hammock without the stand for a month with trees only, but decided to spurge. Glad we did. We can use hammock right next to the trailer (GeoPro G19FD) anytime. Its sturdy, good looking, and relatively light/not bulky to store in pickup. We just put one of those weaved plastic 8x10 rugs under it to help getting in and out and stay clean.

We had a Coleman hammock with a stand. But it was pretty heavy.
